Arsenal literally destroyed Newcastle. Arteta’s men now have the best goal difference in the Premier League

After the first half, the guests had 0 shots, 0 corner kicks and 0 touches of the ball in the rival area.

It seems that Newcastle forgot to take the field. More precisely, the players were physically there, but only Arsenal played football. Perhaps this was the reaction of Arteta’s team to the bad game in Porto. Or a kind of revenge for the scandalous defeat against Newcastle in the first round. One way or another, the hosts literally crushed their opponents at the Emirates.

Of course, it can be said that the guests opened the score, but there is one caveat. It was Botman’s own goal. After a corner, Gabriel finished off with a header and the ball bounced off the goal until it entered the center back’s foot. For Newcastle goalkeeper Karius it was his first Premier League game in six years, but the goal was not his fault.

As in the second. Havertz simply shot at goal from five meters after an assist from Martinelli. The German entered the center of the attack this time, while Jesús, Trossard and Nketiah remained on the Arsenal bench. However, Arteta has selected the optimal starting lineup. The locals could have scored even more. And it is worth mentioning separately Newcastle’s statistics in the first half: 0 shots, 0 corners, 0 touches in another’s area.

The second half continued as the first ended: Arsenal pressed more. Already in the 47th minute, Havertz confronted the goalkeeper, but missed the opportunity. Only then did the Newcastle players take the first shot on goal. Gordon did it, but Raya took the ball without problems.

Midway through the second half, Saka closed the question of the winner. The right winger entered the area, twisted the opponent and shot irresistibly into the far corner (3:0). The Englishman has not gone without scoring for the fifth consecutive day (a total of seven goals in these five games).

We only had to wait four minutes for the next goal. Kivor fired after a cross from a corner, and the ball went into the goal after bouncing off the hands of Miley and Karius. The goal was still attributed to the Arsenal defender. Thus, 18 different players have already stood out for the team this Premier League season.

Add to this the fact that Odegaard and Nelson successfully played with their heels, and Trossard threw the ball between the opponent’s legs, and we can understand how much more powerful Arsenal were that night. It is true that at the end of the match he still allowed Newcastle to score once. Willock, who came on as a substitute, scored with a header.

Arsenal remain two points behind leaders Liverpool. At the same time, the Londoners have the best goal difference in the Premier League (+39). In any case, this is the first result in the league with equal points.

And this match between Arsenal and Newcastle went down in history
